Pierce did things the old fashioned way : he asked Claudia’s family for her hand in marriage and planned a proposal that she knew nothing about. They hadn’t gone ring shopping, she wasn’t expecting a proposal at every turn (or any turn, for that matter). Add to that the fact that he pulled the whole thing off on a secluded beach in the Caribbean. It was stunningly beautiful, and Claudia was completely swept away.
I’ve been talking with Brandy and Micah since before they were officially engaged, and getting to spend time with them over the last several months has been such a cool part of the process. I love these portraits of them, images distilled down to the very essence of what draws them together in the first place.
Months before we did these photos, when this session was just a date on the calendar, Brooke and Ben said the thing they really wanted was snow. We thought we would have to drive up into the high elevations to find snow on command like that, but instead, on the day we had written in our calendars there was a blizzard. It snowed and snowed and snowed, and it transformed Wash Park into a winter wonderland.
